I am proud to show you my letter that I got today from Tom Murry, NC House of representatives, 41st District

Today I got this letter in the mail congratulating me on my accomplishments with my McDonald’s Champions of Play and my other cooking adventures  from Tom Murry, NC House of Representatives for the 41st District.

I was honored and hope to continue to show kids healthy eating and cooking as well as having fun in the kitchen.  I would like to be a spokesperson for NC not only to encourage kids to get in the kitchen but to also show them the wonderful crops and food items that are grown and made right here in NC.  Thank you Mr. Murry for your support.

Thank you McDonald’s for a memory that will last a lifetime!

I hope that you have enjoyed my posts and pictures from our trip to the London Olympic Games.  We had a fantastic time, met so many new friends and got to do and experience things that one can only dream about.  Thank you to McDonald’s, all of their employees and everyone who supported me along the way.
